    Question iMovie 05'
    I know this is 5 years old but because I'm poor I cant afford a brand new mac, long story short, I've come across a excellent deal for a iBook G4, full upgraded with lots of programmes, and one of them is iMovie 05'
    I was wondering if anyone has any experiance with this? isit any good (I'm assuming because its so old itll be basic) - I'm looking forward to playing around with it (:

    Plenty of people used iMovie 05 when it was out. I'm not sure of the performance on that machine, but would expect it would be fine for editing standard definition video.

    The best way to edit is to do your cuts first and add any effects later because that version renders the effects as you apply them. That is time consuming.

    You didn't mention the speed of the machine. Check lowendmac.com for model information. If it is really slow, pass on the deal. The 'iBook G4' covers many speed models as I recall.

    For editing standard definition you should be fine given what I said above. I would expect that Hi-Def would be problematic. It looks like that version of iMovie can edit Hi-Def.

    The 40GB drive is small. One hour of standard definition miniDV tape takes up about 13GB of disk space.
